MOVIE REVIEW: Vikrant Rona failed to entertain due to its poor script and dragged screenplay. The writers were so clueless in the first half of the film that the audience gets confused about whether it is a horror, thriller, romance, or action film. There was no effort into the character development or a storyline.

The actual film begins in the second half but due to the terrible execution, the mystery & suspense can not hold the viewers. The music and the climax are other big letdowns. The editing was done in a helter-skelter way. The film can easily be trimmed for 15-20 minutes.

Sudeep is a great actor but he could not able to save this film due to its bad writing. Jacqueline Fernandez is flawless in the Rakkamma song. Nirup Bhandari, Neetha Ashok, and all other supporting casts have delivered an average performance. If you still want to watch this then go with no expectations. The VFX and cinematography are the only plus points of this movie.

Vikrant Rona Movie Rating:
Direction 2/5
Acting 2.5/5
Editing 2/5
Story 2/5
Screenplay 1.5/5
Overall Hit ya Flop Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars (Below Average)
